“The February 10-11th Lunar (Full Moon) Eclipse in Leo represents the opening of a new gateway and a starting point into the energies of 2017

Eclipses act like doorways into different energy paths, and are powerful enough to transform, shift and change the direction and flow of your life.

The last eclipse was in September 2016 and February’s Eclipse is going to bring an end to whatever energy was brewing at this time. This ending is to pave the way for a new beginning, which will come at the end of the month on the New Moon Solar Eclipse. Whatever you needed to let go of, whatever changes you needed to make, this Eclipse is going to ensure that it happens.  This is a powerful eclipse, but it is also extremely magical and protective. Change will happen but it is definitely going to be change for the better.

The pentagram formation of this February Eclipse is going to ensure that our lives are put into perfect balance and symmetry. It is also going to ensure that we have the tools we need to move forward into 2017 with confidence and a fresh perspective.

The February 2017 Astrology Highlights Two Important Turning Point Eclipses

With two back to back eclipses (one in dramatic Leo & the other in emotional Pisces), this is not a month to be taken lightly. Given that Aquarius, the sign that likes to be different, will be in full focus we can expect the month ahead to have a twist of business NOT as usual. Unexpected events and new turning points are about to come to the table.

If anyone is in need of some action then this is the time it’s going to be found. Events will be happening and new discoveries will take place. A big awakening into our souls is in the works and it’s something we should all be aware of. Eclipses get us more in touch with new directions we need to take AND old ones we need to say good-bye to.

Get ready for a new roller-coaster ride to begin. Welcome to February—one of the most intense months of the year!”

In regards to the Solar Eclipse and the New Moon that land at the end of the month on the 26th of February.  Just in time for the New Moon Women’s Retreat I am hosting in Lava Hot Springs, titled the Oracle Session.  Here is some insight we will be working with astrologically.

“Solar Eclipse Meaning

A Solar Eclipse is a turbo-charged New Moon. Generally New Moon rituals are perfect for planting new seeds and starting afresh. We are essentially working on the blank canvas of the dark moon where our ideas can gestate in the new moon soil. But with an Eclipse, the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth therefore interrupting the flow of energy and causing disruption. It breaks our habitual behaviour and gives us a kind of cosmic reboot.

The Moon blots out masculine/left-brain energy for while, so the feminine/right brain is flooded with instinctual and intuitive energy. This makes the unconscious, conscious, like when you become aware that you are dreaming. During an eclipse, like the lucid dream, we get that same sudden feeling of hyper-awareness. We could do anything!! Sometimes this is so awesome that we don’t know what to do, others even become afraid of their own power.

At best, the effect of a solar Eclipse can amplify insights gained from a very balanced left and right brain. The Solar eclipse is very good at showing up any imbalances you have. Eg, You are on one leg in tree pose and the Solar eclipse pokes you in the side. The amount of wobble, shows how much centering you need to do. A Solar Eclipse can bring an awakening or a shocking revelation that rocks you to the core. It aims to balance out left and right brain hemispheres and therefore consciousness, so that you are not lopsided.

It is not a question of linear/solar/left brain = bad and cyclical/lunar/right brain = good. The person cannot function to its optimum without the unification and balance of both hemispheres. Some people have equal hemisphere strength, but the sides are disconnected, so they flip from one extreme to the other. Many artistic and spiritual types are right-brain dominant and thus can find it hard to ground themselves in 3D reality. An Eclipse may cause a crisis where the right brainer needs to strengthen boundaries and use rational thought. With a left brain dominant, the opposite can happen, boundaries are dissolved and they need to be open with their feelings.”
